The ousted NURTW chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya alias MC Oluomo, has been appointed Chairman of the Lagos State Parks Management Committee by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Governor Sanwo Olu also authorised the appointment of AIG Hakeem Odumosu (retd) as the Government Liaison Officer.

The two were members of a 25-man state group charged for overseeing all state motor parks and garages.

The appointment occurred a month after the state administration denied Akinsanya’s appointment, citing a feud with the union’s national management.

Akinsanya’s son had already announced the appointment on Instagram, but the state administration disputed it.

Alhaji Tajudeen Baruwa, the NURTW’s National Executive, has suspended Mc Oluomo for suspected insubordination.

Following his suspension, the state administration vowed to form a management council to oversee operations in parks and garages.

Officials claimed Friday night that a committee was established up to regulate all vehicle parks and garages in the state.

This, he said, is in keeping with the Government’s resolve not to let the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) disrupt peace and order.

The National Executive has just abolished Akinsanya’s NURTW Council.

The commissioner said the committee members were chosen after discussions with industry stakeholders.

A committee to manage all motor parks and garages in Lagos was established up, according to the statement.

“This is to guarantee that events in the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) do not undermine peace and order.

In order to maintain the tranquillity of our beloved state, the government has employed its constitutional authority to fill any voids in the parks.

“We owe this to all Lagosians and visitors. The committee’s members are: Mr. Hakeem Odumosu (AIG Rtd) – GLO. Alh Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya

“Members of the committee will report to the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.”
